Welcome to The List,
Carly Pierce always associated playing the Grand Ole Opry with “Making It” and the day she got to PLAY the Opry? “I felt like in that moment, that the Opry took a chance on me. I do feel like they kind of were one of the very first champions for me. And I meant it the day that I stepped on that stage, like I want to be a face of the Opry. I want to carry on that legacy.” Adding, that she didn’t have a song on the radio but they just believed in what she was doing… performing 75 times in five years, I think they know that by now…
The paparazzi found themselves in a precarious situation following Jason Momoa around Italy. He’s there to film a new movie and they wouldn’t leave him alone while he was riding his motorcycle…so, he introduced them to some of his new tour guides….a group of Hells Angels…POOF, no more paparazzi.
